[Battlemesh] Meshenger and mesh network applications uses cases

After seeing the presentation on Meshenger at Battlemesh 2019, I
thought of other computer applications that would very strongly benefit
from having a mesh network to run on.

There are human interactions that are both privacy sensitive and
would work well in a local communities:
- Borrowing / giving / buying hardware, tools, or goods that a person
  does not use anymore.
- Exchanging services.
- Meeting people.

If the underlying network is a mesh network and that the fixed nodes
(like a WiFi router running B.A.T.M.A.N for instance) locations are more
or less known, messages could be send with some given TTL that would
prevent them from propagating too far away.
